The well known Israeli social activist and former member of the Black Panther movement in Israel, Charlie Biton, spoke before protesters at the Tel Aviv rally on Saturday. Biton said: "40 years have passed since the day I stepped out, instilled with faith against the injustice surrounding me. Since then, year after year, I've been waiting for a new generation to stand up against injustice – and here it is."
Biton added: "My hope withered from year to year, as the injustice grew… But now, after 40 years my vision has been realized!" (Attila Somfalvi)
